I really went overboard with the editing of this image, but I don’t really care. I had a blast doing it, and in the process, I learned soooooo much about what Lightroom is capable of.
The image below is one I normally would have tossed in the recycle bin, but because it has so much wrong with it, I figured it would be a good one to practice using pretty much every one of the Lightroom editing tools.
The next image is the edited one. The difference blows my mind. I never imagined that I’d be able to get this much colour and detail from this crappy dark JPG.
This is the point in my blog post where I often list my edits (if I made any). I’m not going to do that today. Lets just say that if I were to list the edits I didn’t make, rather than the ones I did make, it would be a shorter list.
P.S. Go on over to Lucile’s Photo 101 Rehab. There are lots of lovely photo submission links to check out. I’m adding this post to her “clinic”.
